We're back from the Computex slog, a week-long fest of modding madness and hardware reveals. Sadly this did have a bit of a knock-on effect with things so Mod of the Month is a tad later than the norm. That said, the forums were nice and busy this May so there's plenty to gaze at. There's a really impressive mix of projects with so many different techniques and ideas on show, ranging from resin inlay and woodwork through to 3D printing and traditional paintwork.
I've always enjoyed this breadth of variety, because it shows how there isn't any one way to approach a project, which keeps things very exciting. It's also been great to see new members taking on modding projects, be it here on the forums or on the other social platforms we now have, such as Discord and Facebook.
Entering Mod of the Month is very easy. All you need to do to enter Mod of the Month is to make sure you add the 'Complete' prefix to your build log. You can find out more here.
Corsair is our sponsor for our monthly modding competitions, and we've got some great prizes for you this month, including its latest RGB LED fans and Vengeance RGB memory spread across the top three positions in Mod of the Month.
As per the rules, if you place first in a Mod of the Month, then in any future Mod of the Months (or Modding Updates) you get into that year, you won't be eligible for prizes. You can still be picked and win, but it will be honorific instead.
We regret that Corsair's worldwide coverage with shipping no longer includes South America or Africa due to continuing issues with shipping to these locations. This is beyond our control, so we sincerely apologise to anyone in these areas, as we'll be unable to honour their prizes for the foreseeable future.
Last month's winners were Alita: Battle Angel - Laptop Mod - Zapan Edition by random2k4 and Project Midnight by twister7800gtx, who tied the top spot with 15 votes each. Third place went to Oracle Project by SaaintJimmy. Congratulations! I will be in contact with you folks soon.
A huge thanks to Corsair for stumping up some great prizes again this month. Don't forget that you can vote for more than one project if you're finding it tough to choose one over the others. MotM is a competition for completed projects. You should consider originality, execution, and show of skill when voting.
